Mocha Macadamia Nut Slice

Posted in Food tagged , at 2:41 pm by Reva

When I’ve had a run of bad days I like to use some of my rationed energy to do something I really want to do.   I know that while the washing, weeding, dishes all need to be done, for my sanity all those things can wait.  I need to do something I want to do.

So yesterday instead of working through my list (more on that another day) I baked.  What I really wanted to make was miniature chocolate cupcakes with chocolate butter cream icing but that damn sensible voice in my head said no – too draining.  And then I remembered the slice I planned to make last weekend.

This slice turned out to be a perfect choice for yesterday because:

  1. I had all the ingredients so no need to use energy going to the supermarket
  2. The recipe had several steps that required cooling which meant I could sit down for a long rest at intervals without worrying about things turning bad.
  3. None of the steps took long so if I needed to rest at any time I could.

There are a few things I could do to make it even easier next time.  I could chop the nuts, chocolate and caramel ahead of time. And the slice base was hard to spread.  If I made this on a particularly bad day again I’d probably rest before this step, and if possible get someone else to cut it. But overall easy peasy!
